CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire could join more than a dozen other states in limiting government and public use of drones to protect citizens’ privacy.

The House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee will hold hearings Thursday on a pair of bills to regulate drones.

New Hampshire was among 43 states last year to introduce bills and resolutions concerning the unmanned aircraft. But the proposal that would have prohibited drones from snapping pictures of people’s houses couldn’t make it through the House.

This year, Republican state Reps. Neal Kurk and Joe Duarte have sponsored bills to require police to get a warrant if they want to use evidence obtained by using drones as surveillance.
